Any recommendations?
Brookhaven plays like sh*t on PSVR but that's down to the gun detection so I estimate that it could play OK on GearVR.

Drop dead is a firm favourite

So sounds stupid but could I use my Samsung galaxy vr headset with controller for this on a galaxy s8 +? Yes I'm new to this vr stuff

Yes, and no.

Android phones aren't like the PC dedicated VR headsets and don't work out the box as a result. They're also wowfully underpowered to do what the PC is going to expect of it.

However, the samsung gear vr headset is quite good quality for what it is, and there are ways to get android phones to work as a 'emulated' VR headset. The problem is latency and refresh rates may make you feel a little sick.

The same can be done to get the Playstation VR headset working on the PC too, although that's more of a dedicated headset and works a little better with driver/tool set.

There are plenty more alternatives, but this one seems to work best. Results will very, mostly down to the specs of the phone and how powerful your PC is to cope with PC VR games.

I've just tried it without using the gear controller. Perfectly playable using the touch section on the right hand side of the headset. It aims where you look basically.

Thanks, think they trying to force people to buy the Gear controller with all the new games seem just to be for that, they should all include gamepad support to.

In case anyone is interested. I've just tried dreadhalls with my ps4 controller. Plays fine but mapping is a bit off. Look with the dpad move with left analogue stick

I've been looking at getting an S7/S8, hopefully with a Gear too so might get a few whilst they're cheap. Any particular recommendations? I bought Brookhaven just coz I know it from PS VR, and going to get the 8p one too (Haunted). Only looking at the cheapest ones unless something is really worth getting. Also, do they do a lot of these kinds of sales or is it just a seasonal thing? Thanks OP!

It's actually really good with the Samsung gear controller
